I love horror. I love technology. And I adore when talented and visionary people mix them together to create something fantastic.
A few months ago I heard about a new way of watching videos on YouTube: interactive 360° videos. What's this? Well, these videos were filmed using 360° cameras that film everything around them. Users can manipulate the screen to decide what part of the scene they want to watch. It's like being inside the action.
Today, we're taking a look at six great and spooky short films available on YouTube. These videos take advantage of the new 360° technology to create new and horrifying experiences.
I hope that you enjoy them!
Interactive Paranormal Activity Seance
Micah Sloat was brutally killed in his own home. The evidence points to one culprit: his wife Katie. Now, their house is known across the country as one of the most famous haunted places in the world. Hundreds of fanatics visit it every year, but three of them are now missing. They entered the garage of this haunted house to play Ouija. The police never found their bodies. The only thing that remained was this video. Watch it at your own risk.

Sci-Fi Horror In 360°
The title may not say much, but trust me, you have to experience this one. This short film is a mixture of horror and sci-fi. The setting? You are inside a spaceship but you don't know who else is with you. I don't want to tell more because it would ruin the experience. Enjoy it!
